What I want to know is, what does Rhino have in the vault that I can't get ahold of now?
This is a serious question, I would really like to know which shows you would want that aren't available now.

"just how much music can you possibly need or even listen to? i don't ask this question to inflame your ire, but more so for the reason that i can't fathom why one can't be more than satisfied by what is already quite readily available."

Wrong! RHINO has pulled the plug on the "Download" series which cost them almost NOTHING to produce. The buyer supplies their own blank CDrs, slim cases and art work. Those links on Nug.net and other sites lead to nowhere. What kind of BS is this?

Anybody who wants those downloads is now forced to burn bootleg copies instead of buying them. Their teasing games with the Winterland 11/73 boxset, is more of the same L.A. corporate WARNER Music's business model garbage.

Some of us just got tired of waiting for the remastered Zane Kesey "Sunshine Daydream" DVD. It now circulates in thre bit torrent scene...

Might as well...

add my flame to the already growing fire.

If we're trying to figure out WHY Rhino has been so slow to release official material, it seems the most likely answer is partly what Purple Gel said and a few others about whether it's cost-effective for Rhino to do so.

If a space alien who knew nothing about the popularity of music in the US/World were to tap into this site he would think the Dead are the most popular band of all time. But what's sadly more true is that there are a VERY limited number of DeadHeads worldwide, and even fewer willing to pay for every vault release that comes out.

Paying for DL's seems especially silly (we all know why) but I for one would pay through the nose for HIGH QUALITY, well-packaged, liner-note infused official show releases. I just would.

But it probably is the case that given the production costs that would go into that weighed versus the number of people who would actually go and buy the product, Rhino would come out in the red.

I'm guessing here, but that's how it seems. I think they;re probably looking right now at the numbers from the Cow Palace New Years show and wondering if it was even worth it.

Just my 2 cents...but I do wish they'd understand that there are at least THIS MANY (archive) DeadHeads who would step up and open their wallets if they would just open the vaults.
